ABOUT ME ..................

I’m Puguh Kribo, with bachelor degree of civil engineer (ST) and bachelor degree of law (SH), was born at Surabaya 33 years ago. Start to get interesting in learning guitar by listening to churchly music and learning from churchly guitarist at my local church named GSJA (Assembly of God Domination) Surabaya. Time goes by…. I got more interested in music and that was the beginning in learning guitar.

I was teenager at that time. While in school at SMPK YBPK Wiyung Surabaya, I started to play music in a band or a team with my friends who have the same interest in music. I, myself already know about rhythms very well. Started on that time, I loved to play music, my guitar in churches and on stages around my neighborhood, round west part of Surabaya.

From the year of 1995 until 2000, when I was studied at Untag 45 University at Surabaya, I get to more and a lot more of music, from the easy one to the very complicated one such as Yngwie, Van Hallen, Skid Row, White Lion, Pantera, Metallica, Nirvana, Pearl jam, Edane, Boomerang, Power Metal, Halloween, Queen, Mr. Big, Deep Purple and many more. I was also taking music courses to sharpen my skills and my feeling in music by taking music course at Melodia Music School Surabaya than I continued the lesson at Yasmi Music School Surabaya (representative of Royal School of Music United Kingdom in Surabaya). For guitar scale, I learned by myself for almost 5 years after I has finished my study at university.

Based on that experience and a lot of study, I continued to develop my knowledge and skills in music. I like to have experience in songs, tried many music festival and parade on East Java, also followed quiet a lot music events.

But for almost 2 years my carrier in music was stopped because of others things. On the year of 2002 until 2008, I owned my own Music Studio named Zieltro at my house on Pumpungan Surabaya. The studio is next to Unitomo University Surabaya and near my campus (Untag 45 University Surabaya). And that time, I became guitar instructor specialist on melody at my studio.

On 2008-2009, I joined the Dean Guitars Contest on the internet by sending my video on www.deanguitars.com. I was the contestant with the higher polling for weeks, this contest is taken by people around the world. In the same time, I also produced my own VCD and sold it for more than 300 copies. It was contained about speed picking, alternate picking and picking improvisation (you can check the video on www.youtube.com by typing puguhsurabaya)

On January 2009 moved to Jakarta, became guitar instructor for electric and classic guitar in Trinity Music School at Pantai Indah Kapuk – North of Jakarta. Have carrier as guitar instructor in GMC (Global Music Centre) at West of Jakarta and on June 2009 joined GSI (Guitar School of Indonesia) at South of Jakarta.

On that year, I did some guitar clinic together with Melodia Jakarta to promote my self and help Melodia to promote their product. On November 2009, endorsement by Stranough Indonesia in term of friendship exclusive ( www.guitarmade.com ).

The history of using both hands for playing guitar :

I was inspired by Jimmy Hendrix. Especially, when I watched him plays his left-handed guitar. It was in the years of 2000-2001, I once tried but than give-up but when I tried again on the year of 2008 …….. I was surprise, I can do it and I develop my skills again, I tried to play with up-side-down string and others experiments …. Finally, I can played the twin guitar, not stop until that stage, I deg more of this twin guitar, more experiment more skills. I felt that something help my to arrange my movement while I’m playing, that’s why I enjoyed it very much. I tried with metronome from the lowest level until the hard one. I also have no problem in trying songs with the twin guitar. You can check the video of my learning progress and experiment in using twin guitar at you-tube.

“Don’t try this at home!”, he2xxxx... just start from the “zero level” he2xxxx….. just kidding……

Practice and patience…. That‘s make all happen J

Before my first public live performance on November 10, 2009; I practiced very hard to use the twin guitar (sponsored by Stranough) well in 2 weeks. I had practiced before, for more than 6 months with separates guitars. One more person than inspired to learn twin guitar is Michael Angelo Batio (you also can check his video on you-tube).

It is the moment, on February 3, 2010 I accepted my reward from MURI (Museum Rekor Dunia, Indonesia) as First Twin Guitar Legend in Indonesia for using both hands together in the same time category (pemain guitar twin menggunakan 2 tangan secara bersamaan). This reward was given by Walikota of Central of Jakarta Mrs. Prof.Dr.Hj.Sylviana Murni SH,Msi. It all happen in Mall of Indonesia (MOI) at West Boulevard street – North of Jakarta.

My regards for Indonesia……
